The Chicago Plan Commission has approved plans for a mixed-use affordable housing development at 201 S Kedzie Avenue in East Garfield Park. Developer Preservation of Affordable Housing has partnered with Perkins+Will and Nia Architects to bring the two-building project to life as the winners of the C40 Reinventing Cities competition. The multi-phase development will replace two empty city-owned lots on the intersection with W 5th Avenue, across the street from Marshall Metro High School.
Final touches for both interior and exterior work can be seen at the 2740 North Spaulding Avenue (filed under 2755 N Milwaukee Avenue) in Logan Square. R.P. Fox & Associates is the developer behind the six-story mixed-use building, whose interior programming involves ground-level retail split into five segments, along with 60 apartments on the upper floors. Prior to demolition and subsequent construction, the roughly half-acre property was occupied by a single-story bakery and a parking lot.
A demolition permit has been issued for a one-story masonry building located at 3798 S Western Avenue in the McKinley Park neighborhood. The permit’s owners have been listed as 3798 S Western LLC. At the time of this writing, no plans appear to have been submitted to upgrade any of the zoning designations for this property and there are currently no permits for any future constructions.
This past week, the tower crane has been erected for a new 43-story mixed-use development in West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Planned by Related Midwest and dubbed “900 Randolph,” this 495-foot-tall tower will offer a combination of ground-level retail and 300 apartment units on the above floors. While marketing materials both on-site and on the developer’s website have listed 900 W Randolph Street as the address, a tip to YIMBY indicated that the project would eventually be switched back to its official address, 164 N Peoria Street.
The Chicago City Council has approved the rezoning for a residential development at 3350 N Ashland Avenue in Lake View. Located just south of the corner with W Roscoe Street, developer 3350 N Ashland LLC plans to demolish the existing two-story masonry commercial building built in 1988 and has sat vacant for multiple years. With 31,348 households within a mile of the lot with a yearly median income of $115,753, the developers hope to tap into the housing boom currently seen in the city.
